Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2018

We chose this Christmas Markets tour because it included cities we know and love: Aachen, Cologne, Rudisheim, Heidelberg, Baden Baden, Strassburg and Colmar. Although cruising the Rhine became problematic after a year of historic heat and low river levels, Tauck found a way to make it all work seamlessly, instituting a "ship swap" half way through. Yes, it is inconvenient to have to pack up and unpack again, but Tauck saw to it that it was a minor inconvenience. Our bags were left packed in our room, and when we got to our new ship and almost identical room, there were our bags. We give them a lot of credit for insuring we got to the places we wanted to see and minimized the inconvenience.

The ship was beautifully decorated for Christmas; the crew was festive and jovial. The smaller ship made it easy to meet people and share information. Our tour directors were very knowledgeable and our city guides were very good, one, Markus, in Cologne, not only good but very funny.

Tauck really has these trips down to a fine art. Transfers are on time, without making you feel rushed. The MS Grace had lovely spaces, a great dining room, a nice alternative casual dining spot, a huge lounge, and a great large walking deck up top with the hottest hot tub I have ever experienced. We felt like cherished guests our entire time on the ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7

Our cabin was spacious and very quiet; we never heard our neighbors on either side because of the way the cabins were laid out. I particularly loved the large walk in closet with safe, full length mirror, plenty of hangers and shelving. Charging our electronics was easy. We also had a small refrigerator and a coffee maker, a TV, an ironing board, and a good sized bathroom with shelves behind the mirrors and plenty of towels. Always a good supply of hot water for showers, etc.
